Roger in Rio – A recording adventure
Roger in Rio – (not to be confused with Rodgers in Rio, our 2002 release of Richard Rodgers tunes styled as Brazilian Jazz). Leaving this week, Roger Davidson travels with producer Pablo Aslan to Rio de Janeiro to record two new albums of original compositions with longtime collaborator drummer Paulo Braga, and a stellar ensemble of local musicians, including drummer Rafael Barata, bassists Ney Conceiçao and Sergio Barroso, trombonist Gilmar Ferreira, sax player Marcelo Martins, and percussionist Marco Lobo.
He will also be performing a concert at Sala Baden Powell and playing at The Maze, a hot new jazz club featured in last week’s NYTimes Travel section. We look forward to sharing the videos and the photos.
